Shock And Aw of the Day: An ad for Dubuque’s Riverview Center — a nonprofit advocacy group for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence — features footage of a smiling baby who will supposedly grow up to rape his girlfriend. Not surprisingly, some people have a problem with this.

Also: Worst. Huggies commercial. Ever.

[register / h/t: adfreak.]

This is a brilliant ad. Thank you Josh Jasper.

Josh Jasper- “I probably do focus my attention on redefining masculinity rather than femininity because the vast majority of violence perpetrated in society is done by men,” he said. “But an important distinction is that a vast majority of men aren’t violent. It’s a very small group of men. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough men and boys who are speaking up saying, ‘This isn’t OK.’”

Jasper is not a man hater and I do not believe this ad promotes hatred of men. So everyone who is sending death threats to Jasper, please stop and please don’t procreate.
